NBC Sports bring Women’s Super League to U.S. in season-long deal

NBC Sports this weekend kicks off a season-long deal to broadcast the FA Women’s Super League, highlighted by this Sunday’s U.S. television debut match between Manchester United and defending champions Chelsea at Noon ET on NBCSN.

Through the partnership between NBC Sports and Atalanta Media, NBC Sports will present 50 league matches between September and May across NBC Sports platforms, including at least 12 matches on NBCSN.

Jonathan Pearce will call Sunday’s Manchester United-Chelsea match, joined by analyst and former England national team player Sue Smith. The match will be shown live at 9:30 a.m. ET on the NBC Sports app and NBCSports.com.

This weekend’s action kicks off on Saturday with Aston Villa hosting Manchester City at 9:30 a.m. ET live on the NBC Sports app and NBCSports.com. Manchester City features two players from the USWNT’s 2019 World Cup-winning team: midfielders Rose Lavelle, who scored the final goal in the U.S. team’s 2-0 victory over the Netherlands in the World Cup Final, and Sam Mewis, who played in six of the team’s seven matches in France.

“We’re excited to partner with Atalanta Media to bring this world-class Women’s Super League competition to U.S. television for the first time,” said Jon Miller, President, Programming, NBC Sports & NBC Sports Network.
